Easter 2009

Wow! I can't believe this is Joseph's 3rd Easter. It seems like it was just his first. Time goes by so quickly!! As usualy our Sunday morning was hectic and crazy and we had to be at church a few more minutes that we normally do for Sunday School for the Raising of the Cross Ceremony which features the babies-teen agers. It is truly a moving experience. The children all take flowers and walk up front and hand them off to be put on a cross that is then raised while the congregation is singing. It gives me chill bumps each year. Of course Joseph wanted Mama to carry him and not walk. Too many people I guess b/c he is definintely not shy!!! This year Joyce, Jason's cousin was in town and went to church with us. We have a short break in between before our regular service starts with breakfast goodies. After church we headed home for lunch at Jason's parents. After lunch we hid eggs for Joseph and played outside most of the afternoon. He even got on Goldie and rode her!! It was a blessed day and I am so thankful for all the many blessings in my life including my family. I did miss being with my family but we were there in spirit!! We had been up last weekend. Below are some pics from Easter Day!!
